LeoVince / Leo Vince LV1 INOX EVOII install

Squeaky back brake? Hard to control at 30mph/40kph?

LeoVince / Leo Vince LV1 INOX EVOII install

Post by AndyW » Tue Sep 30, 2014 1:03 pm

990 SMT install:
I can't get the cans mounted so that they're both the same distance from the sub-frame at the back.....the right side (looking to the front of the bike) is 10mil or more further out! :confused: Been driving me nuts trying to sort it but can't see any way that I can!
Anyone had the same experience?

Look at the y shape connecting pipes, I suspect these are not quite on straight.

That was one thought I had but the mounting 'brackets' are flush against the mounting points on the bike's frame :?

.....think I'll just have to live with it, could take the lot off and start from scratch but not in the mood now!......would be reassuring to find I'm not alone with this 'issue'!

If you search at the forum you will find that LEOVINCE with standard SMT brackets have issues like that, being a bit offset. I have them and they seem really good. Some others had problems..

Hi Andy
What did you use in place of the luggage supports as a spacer to mount the exhaust straps? Just got some Leo's and want to leave the luggage supports off.
Cheers
Shaun

Hi Shaun, pretty much bolted straight on (with addition of a few washers you can see in one of the photos below....need shorter bolt, another round-to-it job lol;-)
The luggage rails were already removed when I bought the bike and it could be that the alloy mounting attached to the frame that the exhaust strap bolts too is part of the fitting kit for the smaller exhaust heat shields that were also already fitted (from the SM.....there's a thread on the forum somewhere with details of the parts).

Post photos of the standard setup for comparison please ;-)

Hi at
Did you need to drill any holes in the panels to get the screw holes to line up?

Mine are out as well. Didn't notice till I read this thread.. :roll:
The longer (nearside) of the two link pipe sections between the cans and the Y is a touch too long. Minor detail I think. Not enough to worry about. Otherwise excellent quality for the money. Shows up how overpriced Akropovics are.
They sound even better with a Rottweiler airbox.
